Universal: Interdimensional Escape is a very exciting mod for all those who love to play minecraft online. I must say that Universal has really made an impression on me. It’s very impressive in terms of the looks and storyline of the game. This is the reason that I have included it in this review.
You play as one of few characters and you start in the center of a strange world. You are required to find out where the escape pod is located and start the journey to the top. From there you have to make your way to the pods with the help of levers and poles placed strategically on the top of the map. Once you reach the destination, you will notice that it is now guarded by creatures called the morphs. The objective is to destroy the morphs and save the characters inside the pod.
You will notice that in this game, there are no hand-placed items but instead everything you need can be collected or bought using the purchase button present on the toolbar. Everything you collect will then be sent to your inventory. There are several levels in Universal: Interdimensional Escape and each of them offer different challenges. For example, in the “Canyon” level you will have to defend the base against waves of enemy creatures that attack using new weapons. On the “Highlands” level there are also several hazards such as spikes and mines which you must prevent from being destroyed by your opponent’s.
A very interesting feature present in Universal: Interdimensional Escape is its usage of the screen-based HUD (heads-up display). When you see an item, you will know exactly what kind it is and where it is located. For example, in the game “Canyon”, a red glow appears near the center of the map when an enemy is about to attack you. When the player presses the action key (usually by the mouse) a beam of light will shine from it and will tell you what type of weapon is required to destroy the creature. Some of these beams can actually miss if you happen to be playing in a dark room.
The music of Universal: Interdimensional Escape is very peaceful and mellow and it doesn’t over-power the player. In fact, the only time I felt excited about playing Universal: Interdimensional Escape was when I realized that I had successfully completed all the levels! Even though it’s a hidden object game, a few of the levels require quite a bit of coordination so I guess it’s not a pure hidden object game after all. I must say, though, that this is an addictive game and it will keep you hooked for a long time. The difficulty levels are enough to keep you wanting to come back to it again.
Overall, Universal: Interdimensional Escape is a fantastic game. The story is interesting and captivating and the sound effects are very crisp. Playing this game feels like you’re actually inside the game because everything is very detailed and you’re not restricted by a limited screen space. Overall, this is definitely one of those games that you will find yourself playing again. One thing you might want to do before releasing Universal: Interdimensional Escape: Hilltop Base to the public: make sure you save your progress after completing all the levels.
